    I worked on a Dodge like this and it turned out to be the RPM sensor inside of the distributor, so when it stalls, check for spark, if it is losing spark, this may it. The Dodge I worked on never set any codes, so that makes it a tougher call.

    Could be rust in the muffler.I had a big flake of rust blowing around inside and would block the tube.turn the motor off and rust fell down.
